The arrival of Bob Geldof as a sober champion may have given the men's movement a new legitimacy after the the flour bombing and superhero stunts. But beneath the bids for sympathy a bitter extremism refuses to go away. Jenifer Johnston reports

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him. He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife.

Quote: Ethics and justice require context. Philosopher and professor John Rawls was the definitive authority on conceptualizing justice. John Rawls moved us more in the direction of liberal and decent society against all the odds.

(PNEWS) Political Roots of Terrorism

Submitted by Editor on Sun, 17/10/2004 - 00:13

Quote: Winning the War on Terrorism - we must understand that terrorism is a strategy, a tactic, used by states and non-state groups alike to advance political goals and objectives. Declaring a war on terrorism is as if President Franklin Roosevelt had declared a war on blitzkrieg. A successful strategy must address the political roots of terrorism

(Altnews) Food for thought!!

Quote: Dear Sir,

The Iraq body count you report is presumably of violent deaths but most of the victims of war die of disease and deprivation - whether an Iraqi child is shot or dies avoidably from disease (due to destruction of sewerage and water infrastructure and lack of clean drinking water, food, medicine and medical care) the end result is the same and the CULPABILITY the same. There is horrendous mass mortality continuing in Iraq - the "excess mortality" (avoidable mortality) in Iraq has been 1.5 million since 1991; UN and UNICEF data indicate an annual under-5 mortality in Occupied Iraq (population 24 million) of about 100,000 (300 kids per day) as compared to 1000 in Australia (population 20 million); current per capita annual medical expenditure in Occupied Iraq is US$40 as compared to US$1000 in Australia.

Kens Comment: Yes, the counter in the left column only records Iraqi civilian deaths during conflict. The numbers are only approximate and are mainly gathered from the world press reports.

Just why the population voted Howard back in after involving us in the US "War on terrorism" is as baffling as Hicks being tried as a "terrorist" when he was taken prisoner of war while fighting as a Talaban soldier.

Quote: The U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq has been the "most misguided" policy since the Vietnam War, according to an open letter signed by some 500 U.S. national-security specialists.
